Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Scientific Computation Program - University of Maryland

Applied Mathematics & Statistics, and Scientific Computation

Scientific Computation Concentration

The Scientific Computation Concentration emphasizes computation and its applications.

Students will apply their training in computation to a problem in a specific discipline such as physics, engineering, finance, or biology.

Admission into the Scientific Computation Concentration requires a strong background in mathematics, an application area, and computation. A student already admitted to the AMSC program can change between the three Concentrations with the approval of the AMSC Graduate Committee.

AM/SC Qualifying Exam Substitution

Students who are still deciding between the AM and SC tracks have the option of taking AMSC 660, 661, and 662. Successful completion of this sequence (GPA of 3.5 or better) satisfies one qualifying exam requirement for the AM track, or helps fulfill the preliminary coursework requirements for the SC track.
